Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: California Yankee Under Three Flags takes place in Monterey, California during the four years before United States won the territory from Mexico in 1847. It is the story of an orphaned eighteen-year old girl, Emily Smith, who arrives in Monterey after sailing around the Horn from Boston and whose parents and brother have died of cholera on the voyage. The story unfolds as Emily moves from a position as governess with Consul Larkin’s children to a marriage with a ranchero. When Emily’s husband joins the insurgents who rid the territory of an unpopular Mexican governor, Emily becomes involved in the political events of the time and has to deal with the differences between the Californian and Yankee cultures. After her husband is killed she changes from being a girl uncertain of her abilities to a woman of strength and determination. The war between the United States and Mexico begins, and when the Yankees take over California also changes, from an easygoing pastoral society, to an aggressively materialistic one.

I want to get away—away from this stagnant hole. It is the same dull story over and over again, day after day, world without end, amen!” “Would you be a bit more contented in any other spot?” “I think so. I cannot believe that mankind in general is so selfish, so hypocritical, and, worst crime of all, so hopelessly stupid as it is here. The world is 25,000 miles in circumference. Why spend all one’s days in this split in the mountains?” “But, tell me, what is your ambition, then? Have you one?”

Download Free Under Three Flags PDF by Benedict Richard O'Gorman Anderson Full Book and published by Verso. This book was released on 2005 with total page 255 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this sparkling new work, Benedict Anderson provides a radical recasting of themes from Imagined Communities, his classic book on nationalism, through an exploration of fin-de-siecle politics and culture that spans the Caribbean, Imperial Europe and the South China Sea. A jewelled pomegranate packed with nitroglycerine is primed to blow away Manila's 19th-century colonial elite at the climax of El Filibusterismo, whose author, the great political novelist Jose Rizal, was executed in 1896 by the Spanish authorities in the Philippines at the age of 35. Anderson explores the impact of avant-garde European literature and politics on Rizal and his contemporary, the pioneering folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes, who was imprisoned in Manila after the violent uprisings of 1896 and later incarcerated, together with Catalan anarchists, in the prison fortress of Montjuich in Barcelona. On his return to the Philippines, by now under American occupation, Isabelo formed the first militant trade unions under the influence of Malatesta and Bakunin. Anderson considers the complex intellectual interactions of these young Filipinos with the new "science" of anthropology in Germany and Austro-Hungary, and with post-Communard experimentalists in Paris, against a background of militant anarchism in Spain, France, Italy and the Americas, Jose Marti's armed uprising in Cuba and anti-imperialist protests in China and Japan. In doing so, he depicts the dense intertwining of anarchist internationalism and radical anti-colonialism. Under Three Flags is a brilliantly original work on the explosive history of national independence and global politics.

C. hospital with no memory and is driven by the need to find home and family. Boarding the riverboat in Cincinnati, he saves old Cyrus Beauregard from murder. From their fiery first encounter in Cincinnati, a warrior's bond develops. In Memphis Jason finds the Union Army occupying his home, with no sign of family or connection to his past. Putting his disappointment aside he re-joins Cyrus on his riverboat. Jason gradually discovers in himself a heightened sense of perception which both helps and haunts, endearing him to Cyrus and his strange crew. Deception forms the line between Cyrus and his group of Texas ranchers on one side and the crooked provisional government on the other. With fists and guns Jason fights for the future of all who survive.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "... offers an unsurpassed chronicle of the war in the West." —Register of the Kentucky Historical Society "This eyewitness account brings a better understanding to a conflict that brought a nation to its knees." —Historical Media Review "... an exceptional Civil War narrative. It has value for the military and literary historian." —War, Literature, and the Arts The letters and diary of Major James Austin Connolly, 123rd Illinois Infantry, constitute an unsurpassed record of Civil War campaigning in the West. Connolly had a flair for narrative, an eye for people and places, and a smooth and facile style. His accounts offer a realistic picture of day-to-day soldiering in the Civil War—of rough, spare living in the field, of boredom and fun in camp, of seemingly aimless scouts, and of the high excitement of battle.

Download Free Confederate Seadog PDF by John Bell Full Book and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2002-10-28 with total page 190 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: John Taylor Wood, the grandson of President Zachary Taylor and a nephew of Jefferson Davis, was one of the most daring and remarkable participants of the Civil War and among the few people to hold dual rank in the Confederate military as a captain in the Confederate States Navy (CSN) and a colonel in the cavalry. Wood was widely known for his wartime activities, but at the time of his death in 1904, he had been largely forgotten. This work combines a thorough biography of John Taylor Wood and three of his memoirs that were published in Century magazine between 1885 and 1898. The biography gives special attention to Wood's childhood and youth, such as his harrowing experiences in Florida during the Seminole Wars, his service in the United States Navy during and after the Mexican War, his experiences in California during the Gold Rush and his leading role among the members of the little-known postwar Confederate naval colony in Halifax, Nova Scotia, organized to fight the Fenian forces for the British in 1866. His writings about the war and other literary activities, and his friendship with William Hall, the first African American to win the Victoria Cross are covered. The memoirs in this book cover his service on the CSS Virginia, the cruise of the CSS Tallahassee (of which he was the commander), and his gutsy escape from the South as the Confederacy collapsed.
